The 99% Conference (web, twitter, tickets) is one of those that I’d wanted to attend for the last two years but never made it either because of schedule conflict or, this year, because it was Sold Out. Organize by the cool people of Behance, it focuses on the 99% of perspiration (and not the 1% of inspiration) required to make things happen (the original quote is from Thomas Edison). They usually gather top-notch speakers who tell original stories about how they transformed their projects from promising ideas into awesome successes.
The 4th edition will take place at the Times Center in New York City on May 3-4, 2012.
If you’re in NYC, planning a trip or work in the creative field, this is a great event to attend both for content and high-level networking. Hope to meet you there (no, I haven’t booked my seat yet… still tinkering with my agenda for next year).
